Hi list,

I'm currently working to get as many testcases as possible to work on my 
local Ubuntu box to get it included in the tinderbox service. The only 
problem remaining is the fact that check_http.t wants direct connection 
to the internet for some tests and I can't get direct access to the 

What do you think about a skipping these cases (like in the diff-output 
below) if no direct connection is available?
